Stanley McChrystal: Listen to Daniel Webster on the Draft

Moral reasons alone should be enough to convince anyone that a military draft, no matter what the excuses, is the antithesis of individual liberty and human freedom.

Ron Paul: The Importance of Free Speech and the Internet

The First Amendment is not there to protect our ability to broadcast weather reports or follow our favorite celebrities. Popular and uncontroversial speech doesn’t need protection. A free society that upholds the inherent human right to free speech will be all the stronger because of it. Only a weak society would feel the need to […]

Obama Should Listen to Jefferson

In light of the disturbing developments with the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, legislation passed by the House and Senate which would allow for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens, it’s only appropriate to share a quote from Thomas Jefferson that is all too fitting for this occasion. “[T]he same act undertaking to authorize […]

Obama to Sign Bill Allowing Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

Happy Birthday, PATRIOT Act

Warrantless searches worked so well for the British Empire in the 1700s, we just had to give it another try in the 21st century. October 26, 2011, marks the tenth year of the USA PATRIOT Act’s existence. Do you feel any safer? [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM_sef3tYuo[/youtube]    

PATRIOT Act Extended Four More Years

On May 27, the House passed a bill extending the PATRIOT Act for another four years. The Senate initially approved the bill with a 73-27 vote, despite vigilant efforts from Senator Rand Paul (including a seven-hour filibuster) to add amendments that would have restricted the federal government’s ability to authorize warrantless searches and single out […]
